Christopher Davis, who runs the Classical Guitar Blog and who is a graduate student at Austin Peay State University (APSU), let me know that APSU is hosting a Summer Guitar Workshop this summer from June 28-July 2. The workshop will offer classes in both classical and fingerstyle guitar styles.
The faculty of the workshop will be:
- Stanley Yates, Director
- Stephen Aron, Classical Guitar Workshop Co-director / Collegiate Competition Chair
- Mir Ali, Classical Guitar Workshop Co-Director / Pre-Collegiate Competition Chair
- Richard Smith, Fingerstyle Workshop Co-Director / Fingerstyle Competition Chair
- Roger Hudson, Fingerstyle Workshop Co-Director
In addition to the classes, the workshop will have competitions for collegiate/post-collegiate classical guitarists, pre-collegiate classical guitarists, and pre-collegiate fingerstyle guitarists. Additionally, there will be concerts each night.
The workshop sounds like a lot of fun. APSU is located about 45 minutes north of Nashville. Housing is available at the college, so if you’re not from this area you can still participate in the workshop.
